free. >> there was one probationally lieutenant demoted. aside from that, everyone that suffered discipline was at the range of sergeant and below. it all fell on the shoulders of rank-and-file and it certainly did not. the rank-and-file follow orders. they don't develop the strategy, they don't develop the orders. >> reporter: oakland city officials declined to comment on the union's allegations because it's an ongoing court case. but attorney john burris who has represented victims of police abuse and who is pushing for the federal court takeover of the department said the problem is deeper and that in fact the rank-and-file do shoulder some of the blame. >> the issue is the officers' conduct itself was wrong in each one of these cases. it was improper. if the officers acted properly in all these cases, we wouldn't have a case. >> reporter: one thing both sides agree on at this point is there needs to be a more effective leadership at the top of the oakland police department. and that is basically the federal judge is going to be deciding in the next couple of weeks. it's something that oakland officials doesn't want to see, a takeover but with this in the

5:15pm
5:16pm
good evening from candlestick park. we are 18 minutes from kingoff between the bears and 49 -- from kickoff between the bears and 49ers of the hello, i'm dennis o'donnell. at 10:30 a.m. the 49ers sent out a statement declaring that alex smith is out of tonight's game against chicago after being evaluated by the team's medical director. smith suffered a concussion last week against the rams and seemed to respond well. he was at practice on wednesday wearing a black jersey. the bottom line is that colin kaepernick is the starter.
5:17pm
jay cutler also suffered a concussion in last week's game against houston. he was replaced by former raiders starter jason campbell so backup quarterbacks played solid last week. kaepernick scored a rushing touchdown but campbell is no slouch. he was 10-5 against the raiders brought in as strong insurance and tonight the bears are cashing in. >> the reason they went in traffic here. that's the backup. i understand that i'm going to play as hard as i can. i been staying up all nights and days studying film and making sure i can catch up for the time that's been lost. you know, you can't get all the time back. but just try to mentally know exactly what you're doing try to let your physical attributes take over. >> alongside is cbs analyst jeremy newberry formerly a 49er and a raider in fact. jason campbell the former raider quarterback starts tonight. how will it change the offense for chicago, jeremy? >> well, you know, they are going to simplify stuff for them of the he had a week to
5:18pm
prepare for it which is huge for him coming off last week but the guy's a starter. he knows what he is doing. he played in plenty of big games. they brought him here to be a great insurance policy. he is mobile, big arm. look for him to try to make the 49er defense play honest and go deep to brandon marshall early. >> colin kaepernick last week i thought was a tale of two quarterbacks. the first half not steady on his feet, second half they looked like the quarterback they expected when they drafted him. >> definitely. he brings such a dynamic to the offense. he is a runner and he has a great arm. the guy is, you know, he has some game action under his belt now, and last week he came in kind of got rushed off the bench. he is prepared to be the starter this week knowing that alex may not be able to go so you should see a different quarterback this week. >> despite the fact that jay cutler won't start for chicago already still opposing players. donte whitner the 49ers safety says opposing teams are just getting up when they play san
5:19pm
francisco. >> with one play specifically in the -- think it was the third or 4th quarter when stephen jackson took a third and 12 caught the ball on a check down and, you know, put a little extra effort into it and got the first down you see the entire sideline explode as if it was the 4th quarter of the nfc championship game. you know? so we understand that teams are, you know, putting a little more effort into it when they play us and we have to step up and accept the challenge and we will. >> matt and brandon marshall the go too guys on offense for the bears. eye-popping numbers but you can expect him to carry the load with cutler out. keep your eye out for michael bush another farmer raider in the chicago backfield and san francisco secondary will have to contain marshall 67 catches second in the league third in yards. now, defensively for chicago they have forced 30 turnovers. this used to be the 49ers domain, jeremy but they got too strong cornerbacks and charles
5:20pm
dillman is making a opposing offenses could have it up how. >> he comes in there and punches at the ball. he throws a mean upper cut and punching that thing out. so, you know, they prepared for that this week. they have watched it. i guarantee they have worked on it. they know what they are getting into. you have to secure that ball with both hands. >> jim harbaugh was showing tape to the 49ers. we are going to take a quick commercial break. we are counselorsing down to monday night football -- counting down to monday night football on cbs 5. jon gruder will put down his silver and black glasses to talk 49ers next.
5:21pm
5:22pm
former raider coach jon gruden will be in the booth tonight. i caught up with gruden
5:23pm
following the espn production meeting this morning. >> jon, were you surprised as we were when you heard this morning about alex? >> i was disappointed obviously but wasn't surprised. the way concussions are today, it's a controversial time when it comes to injuries to the head. so i'm not surprised at all. it's a great opportunity for colin kaepernick that's for sure. >> it is. so you look at campbell versus kaepernick. colin showed something last week. who has the advantage? >> experience goes to campbell. this is his 71st start. i'm intreated buying colin kaepernick. he can run and throw.i'm intrigued by him. he has a bright upside. he has a good offense, confident in his abilities. he will play well. >> does he have the ability to break free when a play breaks
5:24pm
down he is better at running, would the bears is prepared for that? >> after meeting with urlacher and briggs last night they are prepared for anything. they have feasted on young quarterbacks in their past. so this has every symptom of a game that's going to be a hard- fought defensive struggle but kaepernick is capable like you say of making a long run on his own. >> you're talking about bears defense. most opportunistic in football. last year the 49ers held that mantle. the corners have 15 between them. why are they so optimistic. >> since levy smith has been in chicago since 2004, they have thrived on taking the ball away. this year they are just red- hot. hopefully teams are studying the tape and they're aware of the blind pursuit because they do a great job when you're in a vulnerable position of poking that ball out. san francisco has to take care of it tonight. i think whitner, goldson, they have to create some of their own like you said, they were very good a year ago. >> stephen jackson proved you can run this football against
5:25pm
the 49ers and i was asking donte whitner about it. he sees this like a super bowl when they play the 49ers. they are up for it concentrate more than maybe two years ago while playing this team. is that it or are there weaknesses now in the 49ers defense? >> stephen jackson came to san francisco on the first four plays and took it to the 49er defense. i think they have to play with the same intensity week in, week out. they can't play down to a 3-5 team. they certainly have to play much better defensively than they did last week. they are capable of doing that. i think they're dominant on all three levels. i'm anxious to see them come back off a tough outing. >> who do you like? >> i like the 49ers. i think the bears struggle in candlestick. i think you have statistics to prove that. i think the 49ers are the most complete and physical team. and think they're going to win a tight game. >> you're such a smart man. you're talking that a local audience and now it. >> yeah. >> did you see frank kelly's impersonation of you? >> yes, i have. i think frank does a great job.
5:26pm
i'd like to see him start imitating jaworski and keshon and some of the other guys too. >> usually if you just watch the quarterback's demeanor after he throws a ball i know it's complete. >> yes, sir. >> i can just tell. you know? you just throw it you just see the confident rhythm. i know it's complete. >> multiple skills, athletic ability, concentration... got to be a leader, make people follow you... it's about focus, man! >> playing a videogame? >> you know, when people start impersonating you, you know you're doing a good job. >> thank you. i'm just trying to get better, hang on to the job i have. >> thanks a lot. >> thanks for having me. >> okay. now let's take a look at the keys to the game and jeremy newberry, it starts with making sure marshall isn't on the field. >> you have to take him out of the game any way necessary. if you double time, triple team, quadruple team him, one receiver, one quality guy, no number two guy, the next guy has less than 200 yards receiving. next, keep kaepernick healthy. any means necessary. protect him if it means leaving extra tight end to block, protect him and then win the turnover battle.
5:27pm
this defense wins their games and this team wins their games both of them by winning the turnover battle. we have to do that tonightful we do those three things, 9er victory for sure. >> that's the keys to the game. we'll see you afterwards on the fifth quarter. complete post-game coverage. right now, back to the studio. >> candlestick filling up. mostly cloudy skies. 60 degrees, great flight for football. >> perfect. >> go 9ers! >> bundle up. coming up next on cbs 5. captions by: caption colorado comments@captioncolorado.com ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,
